No-hopers self-victimising again, this time over the Olympics, blaming all and sundry for their own failure. You make your own life. No one does it for you, no one prevents you from doing it. We're all born free. It's your choice what you make of that freedom. The less freedom you take, the more there is for me.
1318. The Protector"The privately educated (7% of population) have won 45% of our medals in Rio."Just goes to show that state schools are still being held back by the left wing view that not only is competition bad, but the best must have their progress hindered, in order that the less able feel better about themselves."Elitism gone mad"All athletes aim to become part of the elite.
@1322 U16117586 1318. The Protector "The privately educated (7% of population) have won 45% of our medals in Rio.Elitism gone mad."--Your analysis is fundamentally flawed---In what way is the analysis flawed, please enlighten us.Are the numbers wrong? If so, what are the correct numbers?
According to the BBC news headline, the Olympic games have finally finished.HURRAY.
Does anyone know what soundtrack they were playing for the bit on Mo Farah? Only the start on this clip sadly, they played the full track on the retrospective of Mo they showed on TV today.
1318. The Protector "The privately educated (7% of population) have won 45% of our medals in Rio.Elitism gone mad."Your analysis is fundamentally flawed - the only thing that has gone mad is you as you go for gold in the jumping to conclusions event.You spout pejorative rhetoric aimlessly - this is clear evidence of your OD disorder.If you were British you'd get that help.
So, UK finishes above China (more golds) but UK does better in Rio than in London (more medals). Do me a favour BBC, you can't have it both ways. And let's be a bit more realistic - if the Russians weren't at London we'd have probably got more medals there anyway.
100% of Team GB's medals in Rio were won by people who are good at sports. Indeed, every competitor was from the same tiny minority of the UK population.Elitism gone mad.
What does education have to do with winning medals? Protector you seem the only person obsessed by private education but it doesn't seem as if you've made or shown any positive use of it. Education isn't a problem with Team GB, which is why they did so well. It's called Unity. Maybe you should try some. Or you're probably unable to find anyone to unite with, with your character.
Lets not forget.The privately educated (7% of population) have won 45% of our medals in Rio.Elitism gone mad.
They keep on saying that was GB's best performance in more than a centuryBut there were less golds than in LondonSo is number of medals the criterion as to performance ? If that's the case GB is third in the tableEither way a good job but shouldn't you be consistent ? Don't pick and choose
Well done Team GB. You were awesome. Can't wait for Tokyo. Here we come. Whoop whoop. As for the jealous and envious non entities we have seen on here you'll never amount to those who've made us proud Brits. You can now crawl back in your lonely dark cesspits and wallow in your pathetic sorrowful lives. Good night my fellow positive vibers.

#1311: "The Olympics is about amateurs having their day"OK, let's go back to amateurs only, using the original rules of the modern Olympics. That would mean that competitors could not accept any funding for travel, accommodation, training, equipment, clothing, or anything else associated with their sport. The only people able to complete would be independently wealthy: in your words, "toffs".
Protector ! Enjoy your last remaining little bit of ill conceived stardom ! Tomorrow back to being the lonely , reviled loathsome character that you are! On a positive note big thanks to all the marvellous "toffs" and "ethnic communities" Thanks for making Rio such an enjoyable event! Looking forward to the lotto (paid by us) giving all it can to Team GB for their Tokyo attempt!
Well done GB team second in medal table more medals than at any games since 1908 when we were the worlds great power, we are a super power in sport now. All the team did the nation proud.Pity its all over.
Second place is First loser.The Olympics is about amateurs having their day not a profesional takeover to boost viewing figures for commericalism. John Major's scheme to give money to the elite by taking it away from grassroots infrastructure is nothing more than treason.
